5 Book Recommendations Based Off Your Last Netflix Binge

Feeling like nothing can fill the void in your heart after finishing the last season of your favorite show? Try checking some new reading material! Not to sound too much like your lecturing grandpa, but books were totally the top source of entertainment for centuries before people had cable. And a lot of the time, the drama and humor in a good novel can be just as captivating as your most recent Netflix binge. Here's a list of book recommendations based on TV shows.

1. If you loved "How To Get Away With Murder"...

...You should read "The Secret History" by Donna Tart

If you’re a fan of all the thrilling twists and shady characters in Shonda Rimes’ hugely popular crime drama, check out The Secret History. In this debut novel by Pulitzer Prize winner Donna Tartt, a group of mythology students explore the complicated circumstances behind why they murdered one of their closest friends.

2. If you loved "Supernatural"...

...You should read "Good Omens" by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett

If you love watching the snappy dialogue and modern interpretations of demons and angels in Supernatural, you have to read this hilarious book co-written by two of literatures most beloved sci-fi legends. Good Omens describes the ridiculous adventures of centuries old demon and angel who team up to stop the Apocalypse after they accidentally “misplace” the Antichrist.

3. If you loved "Gilmore Girls"...

...You should read "Where'd You Go, Bernadette" by Maria Semple

Although the mother daughter duo in Where’d You, Go Bernadette may be much more dysfunctional than Lorelai and Rory, the bond between the women is just as strong and unique as our favorite Gilmores and the novel is totally worth a read!

4. If you loved "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"...

...You should read the "Vampire Academy" Series by Richelle Mead

Other than the obvious similarity of starring a snarky, vampire-hunting protagonist, Vampire Academyapproaches sensitive teen issues with the same intense realism as Buffy while also using the same witty and campy approach to describing a world full of supernatural creatures.

5. If you loved "Gossip Girl"...

...You should read "Breakfast at Tiffany's" by Truman Capote

Let’s just say there’s a reason why Breakfast at Tiffany’s was Blair Waldorf’s favorite movie. Holly Golightly was definitely the original Upper East Side socialite, and the secrets surrounding her mysterious past would not be out of place in one of Gossip Girl’s famous text blasts.

So next time nothing on your Netflix recommendations is grabbing your attention, try heading down to the library and getting lost in a story the old-fashioned way!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
